skin sensitivity - burning sensation
Mar 23, 2009
I have been experiencing a burning sensation on my skin lasting about a month.
The sensation started at the top of my bu on both sides and now is mid baxk and on my scalp.
I am worried as to what it could be. I thought of shingles but there is no rash.
Any help would be appreciated.

It would be unusual to develop a skin sensitivity from your current HIV meds after two years of use though it may happen rarely. An evaluation by your HIV specialist and/or a dermatologist is recommended to more precisely define the nature of the skin abnormality in order to make a diagnosis and offer treatment suggestions. KH
